Advisory Groups


Do you have ideas and want to help inform our programs and services? Library staff collaboration and participation is essential not only to our mission, but to the library community as well. Advisory Groups serve as a resource to the staff of the Northeast Ohio Regional Library System, providing member input on topics and projects of relevance in specified areas. Advisory Groups meet two times each fiscal year to assist with program/services development. Advisory Groups are open to all library staff in our Gold, Silver and Bronze Member libraries with one representative on each Group from a Geographic Member library. Advisory Group members serve for a minimum of a one year with a maximum of two years in a row.
